The Council of Ancients was part of the French Government based on the Constitution of the Year III (1795). It was made up of 250 men over the age of 40 years who would approve of or reject bills introduced by the Council of Five Hundred but they could not change the bills. Along with the Five Hundred, they were the legislative branch of the Government.
